Inferi Premiere New Song “Behold the Bearer of Light” Feat. Trevor Strnad Of The Black Dahlia Murder

Inferi premiere a new song entitled “Behold the Bearer of Light”, taken from their upcoming new album “Revenant”, which comes out April 21 on The Artisan Era. The Black Dahlia Murder frontman Trevor Strnad lends some of his distinctive screams to it too.

Check out now “Behold the Bearer of Light” below.

Says Inferi guitarist Malcolm Pugh:

“This album was long overdue, but are all very proud of how ‘Revenant’ turned out as a whole. Our new lineup has really set the bar higher than we ever thought was possible for the sound we are trying to create, so this is by far the most mature album we have ever put together. Each song has its own character and as a whole, I think it will take listeners on a journey through some very interesting and energetic musical passages.”

Debut Album “Archaic Malevolence” Detailed By Infected Dead

From the rotten shores of the River Medway in Kent, Infected Dead has emerged to reveal details of the debut record “Archaic Malevolence,” which set for release December 8th via Hostile Media.

Six tracks of visceral death metal, brutal, catchy, influenced by subgenre leaders Aborted and The Black Dahlia Murder, as well as a love of the occult and Lovecraftian cosmic horror. The 5-piece has honed a razor-sharp sound, underlined by a trademark breakneck speed and intense live shows, which has been quickly turning heads in the U.K. underground. Pre-orders are available at this location.

Guitarist Alex Brown comments, “We are delighted to announce our union with Hostile Media for the release of our first offering. This year has been great for us and we’d like to thank them for their faith in what we do and for helping us step up to the next level. From the start of the writing process for ‘Archaic Malevolence’ it was always our intention to push ourselves. We wanted to enter uncharted territory and push the boundaries of what we could do technically and creatively. Inspired by modern day juggernauts such as Aborted, The Faceless, Nile and countless others we feel this release is the perfect balance of unrestrained brutality, infectious hooks and sinister melody from the grandiose title track to the crushing weight of ‘Invocation Of Unspeakable Gods’ this release was designed to grab you.”

“Archaic Malevolence” was produced, mixed and mastered by Wynter Prior, while Luciferium War Graphics was responsible for the epic artwork shown below.

The track listing is as follows:

1. Book Of Dead Names
2. Archaic Malevolence
3. Resurrectionist
4. Invocation Of Unspeakable Gods
5. Forced Existence
6. Samsara

U.S. Headline Tour Announced By Exhumed

Gore metal maniacs Exhumed today announced a U.S. headlining tour set to commence November 15th and run through December 8th. Support will be provided by Arkaik. The trek will follow the band’s previously announced short run of live dates with The Black Dahlia Murder, Suffocation, Decrepit Birth and more as well as a performance at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest on November 5th in San Bernardino, California. See confirmed dates below.

“We can’t wait to unleash a casket full of new tunes and old favorites on some maniacs,” issues frontman Matt Harvey. “It’s been too long since we rolled into your town, drank all your beer, and ripped your faces off. See you there, you filthy animals!”

Exhumed’s forthcoming full-length, “Death Revenge,” is set for release on October 13th on CD, LP, deluxe LP with cassette, and digital formats via Relapse Records. Physical packages and digital orders are available via Relapse.com here and Bandcamp over here.

The band’s sixth full-length sees the gory carcass tread into ambitious new territory with the first conceptual album: a musical melodrama in thirteen parts based on shocking true events. “Death Revenge” takes place in the late 1820s in Edinburgh, Scotland and tells the macabre tale of a series of brutal murders where the victims’ cadavers were sold to anatomists, amid a grisly underground trade of grave-robbery.

Recorded with producer Jarrett Pritchard (Goatwhore, Eternal, Gruesome), “Death Revenge” takes the band’s signature gore-drenched, death metal mayhem to theatrical and ghastly new depths.

Buried Realm Premieres New Song “Asphyxiation’s Lullaby” From Upcoming New Album “The Ichor Carcinoma”

Colorado musician/vocalist Josh Dummer’s solo project Buried Realm premieres a new song entitled “Asphyxiation’s Lullaby”, taken from the upcoming new album “The Ichor Carcinoma”, which is set for release on September 29th, 2017.

The release boasts a list of guest appearances including Bob Katsionis (Firewind, Septicflesh), Brandon Ellis (Arsis, The Black Dahlia Murder, Cannabis Corpse), Christopher Amott (Arch Enemy, Armageddon), Dean Paul Arnold (Vital Remains), Marios Iliopoulos (Nightrage), Peter Wichers (Soilwork), Ryan Strain (Recode The Subliminal), Teemu Mäntysaari (Wintersun), and Travis Montgomery (Threat Signal, Jeff Loomis band).

Check out now “Asphyxiation’s Lullaby” below.

Explains Josh Dummer:

“Lyrically, this song entertains the idea of entering the spiritual realm of sleep paralysis, and pulling through the depths of such darkness. Anyone that experiences this knows how freaky it is. Another aggressive and “in your face” tune. Teemu Mäntysaari (Wintersun) and vocalist Ryan Strain are featured on this one.”

New Album “Imperium” Detailed By The Kennedy Veil

California death metal legion The Kennedy Veil will release the newest full-length “Imperium” on October 20th via Unique Leader Records. The eight-track offering was produced, mixed, and mastered by Zack Ohren (Animosity, Suffocation, All Shall Perish et al) at Castle Ultimate Productions and features guest appearances by Trevor Strnad of The Black Dahlia Murder, Sven de Caluwé of Aborted, and Dickie Allen of Infant Annihilator. It comes swathed in the cover art of Robert Cook (see it below).

The occult has been a construct within civilizations all over the world, varying in degree and modernity, but always present. Each individual culture derives its occultism from the dark myths that permeate within its subconscious hive mind. America as a culture — as an experiment — has been volatile since day one. Plagued by a history of genocide, slavery, and corruption, its burgeoning occult is in its fragile yet violent infancy. Imperium highlights themes of this encapsulation: That is, fear, myth, despair, and humanity’s inclination toward utter corruption.

Taking influence from a purer, more ancient evil of European descent, The Kennedy Veil has incorporated symphonic, blackened themes that parallel the lyrical aesthetic. Moving one step away from the more technical side and two steps into a deeper, darker, more blackened aggression.

Issues the band: “We are beyond excited to bring you our newest and greatest interpretation of darkness and intensity: ‘Imperium.’ This album shows our maturation not only as musicians but as individuals seeking truth amongst a never before seen landscape of obfuscation and evil. These eight songs came from our hands to warn of the oncoming desolation our culture is awaiting. We give you Imperium. A new chapter in The Kennedy Veil tome. Nowhere is safe.”

Preorders for Imperium will be available in the coming weeks. The track list is:

1. Godslaughter
2. Legacy Left
3. Hunted To Extinction
4. Draconian
5. Last Born
6. Flesh Of The Sun
7. Dawning Of Wrathful Deities
8. Seething Rot
